Audenshaw School subscribes to a service called GCSEPod which is completely free to your son. We believe this resource will be of great benefit to him during the next few crucial months. We are initially rolling this out to our year 11 students. This resource will also be making this available to our year 10 students later on in the school year, as we begin to prepare for their final year.
GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and containing all the right facts, quotations, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that learners need for GCSE success. The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the podcasts can be downloaded for offline viewing. The podcasts are also mapped to the curriculum and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time.
We recommend that you discuss GCSEPod with your son to ensure that they have the correct login details to enter the site and encourage them to make use of this service throughout the year.
All students have already been registered with GCSEPod and so simply need to activate their account and choose a username and password. To access GCSEPod for the first time, students should follow these steps:
- Go to www.gcsepod.com and click “Login” in the top right hand corner
- Click “New here? Get started.”
- Tick the pupil box
- Enter their correct first name, surname and date of birth as it is stated within SIMS, in the dedicated boxes and enter ‘Audenshaw’ as the school.
- Select a username and password (to be used when they next login) and select the subjects they study
Once logged in, students can search for podcasts by keyword, by a specific exam or by subject area. Students can create their own personalised learning playlists which can be easily downloaded for offline viewing.
